The Center for Arts Leadership is located in Room 931 of Roosevelt University’s historic Auditorium Building, and serves as an on campus resource for faculty, staff, and students.  Each year, the CAL hosts a wide range of guest artists and speakers, averaging over twenty events per year. Events include the bi-annual entrepreneurship focused “Purpose Driven Musician Day” and a series of career oriented talk-backs with guest artists called “How did I get here?”. Guest speakers for 2018 have included actor Ntare Mwine, series regular on “The Chi,” Lidiya Yankovskaya, conductor and Artistic Director of Chicago Opera Theater, and conductor Carl Topilow, founder of the Cleveland Pops Orchestra. In addition to our guest artist series, the CAL hosts two student grant programs and creates opportunities for students to perform community engagement with over fifty opportunities throughout Chicago each year.
